About this deal

Advice about the CE7/7 plug was useful, as the German Schuko and the french version do look very similar. The lower left picture shows a socket that is perfectly round, with no raised sections on the left and right. It's not so much that the supply is AC it's that we in the UK consider the 'neutral' to be at earth (ground) potential and usually only switch (disconnect) the 'live'. The third and most important factor for me is after explaining the first 2 factors actually the second to my wife And failing miserably.

Just be slightly careful, a basic Schuko (German - Schutzkontakt) does not fit a French socket, and vice versa. I'm going to Sequoia Park in France during August with my young family, first ever camping trip abroad so have non idea what to expect!If you are really concerned then you need one that indicates the value but if the value isn't low enough then what do you do? The extension lead you are considering * gives you that all important safety item the RCD [residual current device]. We always carry a French / German adaptor cable as the type used on a site (or aire) is totally unpredictable. We’ve had about 30 nights away over 10 months and cooked / made coffee many times per day and still on our first 907 - so a fair while. As you quoted me you should have left on the part I was pointing out, we don't have the earth pin and hole in the plug in Spain, so a Spanish plug doesn't fit French sockets, and yes you are right about top and bottom contacts for earth, I just googled French electric socket and that's the photo that came up.

seems unlikely at the moment but we would like to go far and wide (Romania, Latvia, Norway, France etc). The opposite end socket plugs your 240v mains into your caravan, campervan to provide you an instant supply of electricity.Whilst the EHU point might well include its own RCD it is so much better to know you have that protection.
